A simple idea of searching for love in music.


By My Emmylou

I’ve been looking for an angel
Who could sing like an ocean breeze
Hold a note so perfectly
Who'd understand a fool like me

A perfect two part harmony
A passion for the words
A journey started long ago
Full of lessons learned

I'd gladly share the stage
To hear your melodies
Each time we'd sing a love song
Your eyes would look at me
I'd thank my lucky stars
For guiding me to you
I could be your Gram Parsons
You could be my Emmylou

If I find that angel
I'd celebrate her with a song
"Bout the first time I heard her voice
How I had to sing along

I felt the strength in the songs she sang"
It called out from her soul
A shelter from the hard times
That every singer knows     


Maybe we'll play in concert halls
Maybe we'll play in bars
As long as we're together
It doesn't matter where we are

Could be drivin' down a highway
Singin' to the radio
Smiling at our good fortune
As we head to our next show
